Ducati 899 Panigale: Excite Bike

The 899 Panigale is Ducati’s newest track dragon, mimicking its big brother, the 1199 Panigale, in all but a few substantial areas. Of course the engine is the big difference, with the 899 featuring a detuned Superquadro two-cylinder engine that enables it to create 148 horsepower and 73 pound-feet of torque. A dual-sided swingarm is another notable difference. But most of the 1199’s good stuff — triple-stage anti-lock brakes, electronic throttle control, Ducati Quick Shift, Ducati Traction Control — is all in there.
